Raspberry Pi rhymes with Hi-Fi

May 2, 2018 | 12:00
It's unlikely you failed to notice the perfect rhyme of Raspberry Pi with... Hi-Fi! The reproduction and perception of music (or other recorded sounds) using a Raspberry Pi seems to have become a favourite subject, if not an obsession to several generations of technophiles. This frenzy mobilises young and old, both audiophiles and people who simply hope to take advantage of technical innovations to listen to music in the most comfortable conditions possible. 
Wouldn't you like to try it, too?​

Hi-Fi Audio DAC

For this purpose, Elektor LABS have released an Audio DAC module with touch screen, at a discount price right now. In the Elektor Store, you can also find the NanoSound module, another audio add-on board for audiophiles. With a 24-bit / 112-dB Hi-Fi Audio DAC onboard, it spectacularly improves the audio quality of your Raspberry Pi.
 

Fully customisable

Taking full advantage of the Raspberry Pi’s open architecture,  NanoSound is fully customisable and programmable!

  • 6 simple GPIO buttons (Python source code provided to read button events).
  • LIRC-compatible IR receiver and control (Lircd.conf provided to read button input).
  • 1.3" OLED display using I²C. (Python display driver code is open source).
